S_VintageColor2Strip
Description
Simulates the old color 2-strip film process from the 1920s. The scene is exposed twice through red and green filters onto alternating frames of a monochrome film strip. Then, the red print is dyed with a red dye and the green print is dyed cyan. Those two strips are cemented together back to back to form the final print. The result contains mostly red and green colors with some synthetic blue from the blue components of the dyes. This effect simulates the two filter colors and the two dye colors as well as adding grain and color correction.
The S_VintageColor2Strip filter comes from the Emmy award winning Boris FX Sapphire filter set.
